Can moving images represent the real world? Justin Chouinard creates media sculptures, performances, and motion image artworks inspired by the limitations of film. Learn how a sequence of still images can trick the brain into seeing movement, and then illustrate your own flipbook animation for a take-home artwork that embodies both the static and cinematic.

View Justin Chouinard’s work, These Ribbons Are Substratum, in the A-I-R Space from March 17 to April 22.

About Family Art Saturday: UMOCA invites children of all ages and their families to discover our changing exhibitions and participate together in hands-on art making activities led by a trained educator.
